We caught up with our Technical Support Manager Tony Greenough to give you an inside look at the role, Lokulus as a company and what the experience has been like since joining our team.
When did you join Lokulus
"So, I joined the company in October 2019, so just over two and a half, so I've worked in the for close to 20 years.
I was a product developer within the insurance industry, primarily focusing on documentation when I first joined the business.
But after ten years, I took the decision to move more into a code-based team and developed real time pricing strategies and algorithms in Drools and Java.
Then we took on the additional scope of web transforms from aggregator sites into individual brokers in the insurance industries."
